Pours a deep ambered brown color witha very sparse head. Nose is very herbal. Definately heather. Flavor is right there. Herbal heather with a brown sugary sweetness in the finish. Not bad at all. Feel is a very light moderate with a moderate carbonation. Nothing bad to say about this one. Its pretty drinkable. I'd have it again.

This 12 oz bottle pours a deep, chestnut brown body with a small beige head that quickly falls into a collar. Island chain patch lacing is prevalent.
Aroma is subdued, with toffee maltiness and a pronounced floral note that is difficult to describe. The floral aroma is like dried lavender, and is definitely not derived from hops.
Mouthfeel is unremarkable, but decent, with a light medium body and medium carbonation.
Taste features some bready malt that blends well with the heather bitterness. Very unusual taste, that evokes the idea of a bitter Coca Cola with a mild alcohol component, accented by dried lavender. Clean finish actually makes this one a bit tasty.
Good drinkability for this well constructed example of an ancient Scottish style. Definitely, worth a try for its unique floral accents.

Presented in a 12oz. brown bottle, no freshness dating on the label
Pours a dark brown, not black. Loses the tan foam and carbonation quite quickly, lackluster lacing.
Very interesting floral aroma. Not perfumy, but like you were sitting near a hill of wild flowers as the breeze brings the aroma over.
Earthy malt with a lingering perfumey floral aspect. Tangy, not bad.
Light bodied and easy drinking. Finishes clean, with a bit of residual maltiness

I'm glad I ordered a small glass rather than a pint. Medium dark brown in color with a nice, chunky head that leaves no lace as it settles into a thin veil. Aroma is all malt, caramel, molasses, dried fruit, and florals, no hop . Tastes the same, slightly sour, perfumey , bready, earthy(dirt), woody. Not even a suggestion of hops to be found. Thin in body and over-carbonated. I can't even finish a 10 oz. glass, not my bag at all.

Dark brown to mahogany with a decent tan head. Aroma and flavor is earthy, malty, and flowery with an almost tar-like(?) character. Medium bodied and smooth with a roasty finish.
Only slightly better in mouthfeel than the original draft version I tried. Very different than Fraoch Heather Ale but neither set the beer world on fire...
'04' bottled version

Deep reddish brown with a light tan head.
Nose is faintly herbal.
Very light body.
Lightly flavored, delicate hebal notes over a sweet malt. Very short finish.
The dark color belies a very light and quaffable brew. The boys up the mountain have produced a very popular, albeit bland brew.

Wow I seemed to like this beer alot more than the other person who reviewed this one,pours a deep brown with some reddish tints thru out with a creat creamy head that settled nicely leaving sheets of lace.Aromas of roasted malt and an odd floral note (the heather?),taste had a lactic quality to it with some chocolate with a late sour note.Nice creamy mouthfeel,a beer with some complexity and oddities I really liked this one if it's bottled I will buy some more for sure.
